Outdoor & Community Experiences
Outdoor Education is a lifelong learning process that increases your child’s awareness, relationship, and dependence on the environment and its systems.
Some of the benefits of outdoor education are:
Strengthens students’ sense of empowerment to make a difference in their community as stewards of the environment.
Improves students’ academic achievement and growth through experiential learning and application.
Gets students outdoors and active in learning.
Activates and increases students’ physical, mental, and social health.
Improves learning enjoyment by changing the pace and location of learning.
Connects families and the community to the school through involvement.
Builds culture and climate through a focus on common language, values, and purpose.
Community-based learning gives many opportunities to students and gives them a direct experience of the wider world to facilitate connections to community needs and how to meet them.
